Loyalist Alumni Mentorship Program

The Loyalist College Café — Loyalist College’s online networking and mentoring platform powered by Ten Thousand Coffees.

The Loyalist College Café is a cross-disciplinary mentorship program linking current students and recent graduates of Loyalist College with alumni and industry professionals in the community to offer guidance when navigating their studies and the career landscape. There is no membership fee, and the service is available to students and alumni at any stage of their careers.

This program includes an online/offline approach for students and alumni to connect over a Coffee Chat. Powered by Ten Thousand Coffees, the Loyalist College Café is a mentorship and networking connector that brings alumni and students together for meaningful career conversations, based on specific career interests and goals. You won’t need to remember to log on to yet another platform on a regular basis in order to get the most out of the 10KC platform. Instead, you can set your interests and goals once and then update your profile as your experience grows. Create an online profile and start connecting today.

Take an hour every one to three months to meet someone new from Loyalist and create an opportunity to learn, share and answer questions.
